PROJECT PROFILES

Fairchild Wheeler: STEM Education and Integrated Sustainability

JCJ Architecture’s approach to the design of the Fairchild Wheeler Interdistrict Magnet Campus (FWiMC) is an example of a LEED Gold project and a case study for leveraging resources and promoting sustainability across multiple dimensions.

The Maggie’s Centre Barts, designed by Steven Holl Architects, opens in London

Laura Lee, Maggie’s Chief Executive said, “It is with great pride that we can announce the opening of Maggie’s Barts. The Centre helps us to extend Maggie’s vital practical and emotional support to more people across the capital.” She added, “Steven Holl’s design is a perfect blend of old and new and sits beautifully next to the historical hospital site. With its colored glass and peaceful roof garden, designed by Darren Hawkes, I am sure the Centre will provide a safe haven for people living with cancer and their family and friends across the East of London.”

Presidio VC Offices in San Francisco

A growing technology investment firm was seeking a light-filled design for their new office space. As is often the case in historic buildings such as San Francisco’s Presidio, structural concrete columns and ridge skylights imposed a repetitive infrastructure that could not be altered.

Seattle’s Third & Harrison office building features Wausau’s curtainwall and windows

Developed by Martin Selig Real Estate, Seattle’s Third & Harrison is a new 185,000-square-foot, five-floor office building and home to Holland America Cruise Lines. Perkins+Will’s architectural team envisioned the project as a new, sustainably designed icon for urban professionals to work near the natural wonders the city has to offer. Amenities include plentiful underground parking, vegetated roof terraces, and street amenities such as seating and pocket parks.

195 CHURCH offices’ window retrofit increases energy efficiency

Located on the New Haven Green, 195 CHURCH is undergoing a $6 million energy-efficient window and lighting retrofit. Implementing recommendations from Globelé Energy and Apogee Enterprises, Inc.’s Building Retrofit Strategy Team, the property’s tenants already are experiencing more comfortable workspaces.

Acoustic Engineering chooses Rockfon ceiling systems

The new 9,000-square-foot office in Mississauga, Ontario, transformed a former warehouse space that is attached to a larger multi-tenant office building. The challenge was to leverage the dynamics of collaborative office space—with glass walls and doors to maintain visual connection to the day-lit open areas—yet create sound privacy and acoustic comfort in enclosed meeting rooms and other areas. Rockfon stone wool ceiling panels, which harness the natural power of stone to enrich modern living, were part of the design that helped achieve Aercoustics’ goals.

Maldives’ Milaidhoo Island Resort showcases heritage of the region

The design of Maldives’ new Milaidhoo Island Resort showcases the traditional history and heritage of the region with custom-made, locally produced elements throughout. Natural building materials and decorations (wood, stone, coconut thatching) were used in construction to ensure that the style remains in touch with nature.

LMN Architects celebrates opening of the Federal Way Performing Arts and Event Center

The Federal Way Performing Arts and Event Center (PAEC) puts cultural arts at the heart of urban vitality, establishing a core identity and focal point for a rapidly growing, richly diverse community. This multi-functional 46,013-square-foot center and adjacent civic park are positioned to catalyze ongoing development and investment in the city for years to come, ensuring Federal Way’s vibrant future in the region.

EXTECH’s LIGHTWALL 3440 supports aesthetic, performance and sustainability goals for Leo Baeck Temple in Los Angeles

The Leo Baeck Temple in Los Angeles features EXTECH’s LIGHTWALL 3440 system as a skylight capping its Jewish community campus center. Approximately 8 feet tall and 145 feet around and possessing many and varied angles, the translucent polycarbonate skylight conveys the sense of a floating gem with an ethereal glow.

The Austin: Designed for Living in the Ethereal-Material World in San Francisco

The Austin is designed by Edmonds + Lee Architects, a full-service design, development, and architecture firm based in San Francisco’s Mission District. The building embodies principals Robert Edmond’s and Vivian Lee’s commitment to producing work that explores relationships of light, space, plane, material, and the endless possibilities of form.

Shepley Bulfinch Completes Interdisciplinary Science Center at Davidson College

Shepley Bulfinch announced the completion of the E. Craig Wall Jr. Academic Center (Wall Center) at Davidson College, a private liberal arts college with nearly 2,000 students in Davidson, North Carolina. The new Wall Center, and renovation of the adjoining Martin Chemistry Laboratory building, together comprise nearly 164,500 SF for collaborative teaching and research labs, faculty offices, and collaboration spaces, while providing campus amenities for the entire Davidson community.

San Antonio’s Cellars at Pearl features Wausau Window and Wall Systems

Cellars at Pearl’s East and West Towers’ 122 apartments range from 650-square-foot floor plans with one bedroom and one bath to 2450-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bath junior penthouses. The towers’ feeling and function is credited to the collaboration of Three: Living Architecture and Don B. McDonald, AIA. Described as a South Texas/Spanish “refined ranch” aesthetic, the towers incorporate native stone, mission tile, reclaimed brick, salvaged hardwood floors, high ceilings, expansive windows, and private terraces and balconies.

400 Fairview conceived as a catalyst for urban engagement

The nature of development in the urban realm is changing from buildings that are predominantly single-purpose structures into multi-use destinations and connected communities—and 400 Fairview embodies this change. At thirteen stories and 337,000-square-feet, this mixed-use building was conceived as a catalyst for urban engagement.

Renovation of Minneapolis’ Baker Center features Tubelite’s curtainwall and storefront

Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, the renovated 90-year-old Baker Center showcases a prominent new building entry featuring Tubelite curtainwall and storefront systems. At the corner of Marquette Avenue and Eighth Street, the main entry provides a unified façade for the four buildings that comprise the complex.

HYPARBOLE: CANDELA SANS CONCRETE

When THEVERYMANY debut a new project in its final form, you can be sure that it has assumed many more guises over the course of its development. HYPARBOLE is no exception: it is the elegant outcome of focused research, countless models, and sometimes multiple prototypes. Our winning 2013 competition entry for this contemporary public art project at the Rhode Island College Fine Arts Center updates 20th-century structural experimentation within the contemporary paradigm of computational production. Here, we take Candela’s 4-12 centimeters of concrete to just 3 millimeters of aluminum.

19th + Mercer in Seattle designed by Weinstein A+U

Located on the east side of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, the 19th & Mercer mixed-use building designed by Weinstein A+U, has helped stimulate the formerly moribund commercial center.

Designed by Integrus Architecture, Sammamish is the last of Washington state’s Bellevue School District’s high schools to be modernized. According to Jack McLeod, director of facilities and operations for the school district, “Sammamish will be the crown jewel.”

Bloomberg’s New European Headquarters Rated World’s Most Sustainable Office Building

Opening later this month in the City of London, Bloomberg’s new European headquarters is the world’s most sustainable office building, as designed. The building achieved an ‘Outstanding’ rating against the BREEAM sustainability assessment method, with a 98.5% score.

Key Center Lobby Reposition

Following the purchase of the 23-story Key Center, Bellevue, Wash., the new building owners quickly determined the need to update the common areas of the building which had grown tired since the building’s completion in 2000. The design solution was to treat the lobby as a series of seven rooms, or stage sets—merging notions of work and hospitality—that were connected through color and seating arrangements.

The Belltown Collective designed by Robert Hutchison Architecture

The new 10,000 square foot Belltown Collective, designed by Robert Hutchison Architecture (RHA), is located on the ground floor and basement level of an early 20th century storefront building at 2231 1st Ave, in what was once Egbert’s furniture showroom.
